Lofti Zadeh, a noted computer scientist and creator of the fuzzy logic theory, is visiting from Berkeley next week. He’ll give a public lecture on “A New Frontier in Computation — Computation with Information Described in Natural Language” next week at the University of Washington’s Tacoma campus.
Zadeh will speak at 1 p.m. April 25 in room 106 of the Birmingham Hay & Seed Building.
The UW press release suggests the direction Zadeh’s lecture could take:
He believes that computation with information described in natural language, or NL-Computation, “opens the door to a wide-ranging enlargement of the role of natural languages in scientific theories, especially in the realms of economics, systems analysis, decision analysis, search and question-answering,” he said.
